ivsEdits: Recommended Laptops for video editing - Updated March 2017
Here you will find some of the best laptops certified to run ivsEdits properly. This list is good for all the other premium NLEs like Adobe Premiere & After Effects, GV Edius, and for all demanding video and graphics applications, like Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk 3DS Max, Maxon Cinema 4D, etc. 
Laptop performance may change a lot using the right RAM modules and settings; sometimes you can double the speed of your laptop making small and inexpensive changes! We designed a specific benchmark tool to help you and ourselves to understand if a laptop is powerful enough for HD or 4K editing or to verify that it is working properly. "ivsEdits Speed Tester" can be downloaded here and it is available into ivsEdits main folder too. Click here to watch its tutorial. Upon request, we can provide laptops and workstations "Optimized and Certified by IVS", it is our job since 1995.

WARNING! THIS LAPTOP IS EXCELLENT, BUT IT IS BASED ON GL553VD PCB AND COMES WITH TWO RELEVANT PROBLEMS:

1st Problem:
THIS LAPTOP COMES IN SINGLE MEMORY CHANNEL MODE BECAUSE 16 GB DDR-4 2400MHZ CL17  ARE ORGANIZED  IN A SINGLE MEMORY  MODULE. ANYWAY AS DEFAULT IT DETERMINES VERY POOR PERFORMANCE UNTIL YOU WILL NOT REPLACE ALL MEMORY  DIMMS (1) WITH TWO DEDICATED DDR-4 DIMMS  (BY DEFAULT ITS PERFORMANCES ARE THE HALF OF G752VT and N552VW).

2nd Problem:
LIKE THE GL553VD,
FX553VD IS VERY NOISY - WITH DEFAULT BIOS (v208) THE FAN ALWAYS RUNS AT ITS MAXIMUM SPEED, 3400Rpm, EVEN IF THE CPU CORES HAVE VERY LOW TEMPERATURES. INSTALLING THE BIOS V300, GOT FROM ITS TWIN-BROTHER GL553VD (the update is available for now 17th FEB2017 only for the GL series), THE FAN SPEED DECREASES at 1999 RPM AND THE  CPU CORES TEMPERATURE GROWS UP TO 51-56°C, BUT THE LAPTOP IS STILL VERY NOISY COMPARED WITH THE SILENT N552VW.  EVEN SELECTING THE MAXIMUM BATTERY SAVING OPTION (CPU  CLOCK MAX at 800MHZ),  THE FX553VD REMAINS TOO NOISY .

 

NOTE: If you wish to get this fast Laptop, already optimized and certified  by IVS to get its maximum speed, we can sell it to you. Contact Us.

NOTA: Se desideri acquistare questo Laptop, già ottimizzato e certificato da IVS per ottenere il massimo delle prestazioni, puoi acquistarlo da noi. Contattaci.
